Department of English and Modern Languages

The Department of English and Modern Languages at HBU is designed to develop the student’s knowledge and understanding of language, literature, culture and ability to communicate effectively in a global community and economy. A specialized ability to read, speak and write critically in English or in a language other than one’s own is not only a valuable asset sought after by employers, but it is an enriching and exciting experience as well. If you are interested in teaching, coursework in languages in conjunction with courses in education can fulfill the requirements for teacher certification. Through a variety of programs and courses, our goal is to provide a substantive language education that prepares you for careers in academia, teaching, social work, publishing, medicine, business, translation, research, linguistics, law and literary studies.
